Quick question re passcode lock... You advise users to turn off passcode lock before running JB, i have an exchange account on my iPhone and as a result the option to turn off passcode is greyed out. Will this cause problems with the JB? If i set passcode to 15 minutes, will that give enough time for JB to complete before phone locks?

You will need to temporarily remove your Exchange profile (and disable the passcode) while jailbreaking.

You ONLY have to cancel remove the passcode during the process of jailbreak. You can set your passcode back after you jailbreak your device.

thanks Britta, thats a pain in the arse but worth every minute for a JB as last...was hoping 15 minute delay would do it...i will try anyway, if it fails i will remove exchange acc until JB complete... har1nlen, thanks i know it is temporary,my exchange account forces you to add passcode so there is no choice but to add passcode again afterwards.

Sure, the passcode will take something encode and the jailbreak program will have trouble with that. Take it easy, jailbreak only takes 5 minutes of your time and nobody can get your personal info in such short time. Enjoy jailbreaking~ :)
